    The refinement and aromatic richness of an exceptional vintage champagne

    The producer

    Dom Pérignon champagne owes its name to the famous monk of the Abbey of Hautvillers in 1668, Pierre Pérignon a.k.a. Dom Pérignon. According to legend, Pierre Pérignon discovered what is known today as the Champagne method. It is said that he then taught this method in 1669 to the Benedictine Thierry Ruinart, who founded Ruinart, the first of the historic Champagne Houses, in 1729. On January 1, 2019, Vincent Chaperon succeeded Richard Geoffroy as Cellar Master of Dom Pérignon.

    The wine

    In essence, Dom Pérignon only exists as a vintage champagne. Dom Pérignon Vintage champagne is made from an extremely rigorous selection of the best grapes. Depending on the quality of the vintage, Dom Pérignon chooses whether or not to declare that vintage. Characterized by its remarkable fullness and harmony, Dom Pérignon Vintage champagne is revealed to the world only after more than 8 years in the cellar.

    The 2012 Vintage Luminous champagne by Dom Pérignon is a special and highly collectible edition of this fine vintage. There is a small switch at the bottom of the bottle and when it is turned on, the green label glows in the dark. Perfect for nighttime celebrations, this champagne will impress the crowd and guarantee a unique tasting experience.

    The vintage

    2012 was a vintage in which particularly variable and difficult climatic conditions impacted the vineyard. Marked by episodes of frost, winter gave way to a spring of successive frosts, heavy rainfall, hailstorms and a sudden drop in temperatures during the flowering period. The hot and dry climate throughout the summer months, especially in August, was optimal both for relieving sanitary pressure and for promoting the ripening of the fruit. The grapes harvested between September 10 and 26 revealed a perfect balance between tension, freshness and richness. Despite the low yields, 2012 was a great vintage for champagne.

    The blend

    This Dom Pérignon Vintage Luminous 2012 is made from a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

    The tasting


    The complex nose combines floral (white flowers) and fruity (apricot, plum) aromas with a beautiful minty freshness and subtle smoky notes, leading to a tasty minerality.


    The precise and generous palate reveals a lively effervescence. Over the course of the tasting, the palate exudes aromas of ginger, tobacco and toast, leading to a tighter finish with good persistence.
